Well the money has made its way through the banking system so the boat is officially mine now. Looks like a nice boat. Has some kind of sticker on the side and around the back/top side of the boat which should come off easily. The seller sent me a video of the boat in the water and it looks like a really nice boat from the video. I don?t really like the swim platform on these, but it?s a CV-21 so?? If anyone is looking for one I know where you will be able to get one. Other than that there is a fish finder/depth gauge bolted to the glove box door so I will be looking for one of those. I?m just stoked because the last CV-21 I bought had a lot of damage where it was run into a dock and I just didn?t have the time or ability to do what needed to be done with it. Still trying to work out the transportation portion. I will have to have a trailer from the US side to go pick it up. There is no way I will be able to get the trailer it is currently on back across the border.

1970 Glastron v166 (stored inside and unused)  /  Rochester, MN  /  $3,800
https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/409113271049344/?ref=search&referral_code=null&referral_story_type=post&tracking=browse_serp%3A70119efc-be22-4134-8364-e6475086f057

This boat is over 50 years old and nearly everything is original. It was stored appropriately indoors climate controlled for nearly 30 years of its life without any use outside. This boat has barely had any use before the owner before me and myself.

It is in amazing shape. This would triply be a great boat for someone wanting to restore a classic gastron tri-hull boat. There is 115 Johnson on it now and now does it move.  50mph on the water no problem. It is so stable with the three hills. It is all set up for tubing, skiing, or whatever water sport you desire. It is a beauty for its age.  We are looking to get out of the boat phase here so we don?t need it. Serious inquiries only please.

Thank you

Boat Trailer - $800 (Adell)
https://sheboygan.craigslist.org/tro/d/waldo-boat-trailer/7520860597.html

It's not pretty, but it is solid. Has new lights and wiring (all soldered connections). Was used for a 19' sterndrive fiberglass boat. Tires have less than 200 miles on them. Bunks are adjustable. Use as a replacement trailer for your boat or turn it into a utility trailer. Tag says the rated capacity is 2950, which leads me to believe the GVWR is 3500.

OK so this has just been an exercise in thinking out loud. Its 897848 and it fits mine, I found one, but it is sold ($40.00) .... I will find one though.

Ba Haha...just from reading my own post and looking at where the unit was at, I went back and found a small nut under the top of the location where the remainder of this part was and found this. Does anyone know if the part I listed above (the micro switch) will fit? it is from the second style lift of the same year on the same 270/130 with the different top plastic cover.

this is what I think this part is based on the wire diagram, this part is from a newer tilt trim I am not sure how the old one (mine) measured the up of the thrust rod if this is what it is. I do not recall any protrusion from it-however it was directly over the center of the thrust rod. The diagram says 7 circuit breaker. Any electric guys out there. Would the way this is wired allow the switch to sense position through its connections...and... does anyone know what kind of switch/circuit breaker or part number I should use?
